Supermarket Income REIT (LSE: SUPR) acquires supermarket sites that form a key part of the future model of grocery in the United Kingdom. SUPR aims to provide long-term RPI-linked income, from institutional grade tenants and the potential for capital growth through active asset management.

The Company focuses on grocery stores which are omnichannel, i.e. fulfilling both online and in-person sales. All of the Company’s  are let to leading UK supermarket operators, diversified by both tenant and geography. Since the Company’s IPO on the London Stock Exchange in July 2017, the Investment Adviser has deployed over £1.2 billion of capital on behalf of the Group into a direct portfolio consisting of 35 supermarket sites  and an indirect interest in a further 26 Sainsbury’s supermarkets through a joint venture with British Airways Pension Trustees Limited.

The Company provides investors with attractive, long-dated, secure, inflation-linked, growing income with the potential for capital appreciation over the longer term and targets a 7% to 10% p.a. total shareholder return over the medium term. The Company has increased its dividend target in line with UK RPI inflation each year.

Broker Coverage

Goodbody (July 2018):
“We are forecasting continued expansion of SUPR as the portfolio and income streams grow. While the benefits of an inflation-link on long-term leases will drive NAV upside and continued dividend growth…This will be driven by the unique asset selection skills of management and knowledge of the market.”

Stifel (Apr 2018)
“Year to date, Supermarket REIT’s shares have risen 1%, out-performing the sector which is down 4%. We believe that the shares are supported by the high dividend yield of 5.4% (versus the REIT average of 3.9%), which we forecast to grow in line with inflation, backed by long unexpired leases that are all RPI-linked, and with a high quality tenant covenant.”
